Floating Glass

The most popular item of 2010 has become an all-time Fusion Home favorite! We (and Ventura customers) can’t seem to get enough of these amazing “floating glass” feathers! Made from mouth-blown glass, each piece is completely unique, with a beautiful feather (or two or three) captured inside. Looks beautiful beside a window or anywhere it can catch the light!

Fusion Home Holiday Selection: Gift-wrapping with a conscience

Keeping everything green and earth-friendly around the holidays can be hard- there’s so much to do, and especially so much to wrap and decorate! Never fear, there’s still a way to keep it green. We like these clever alternatives:

Invented by a middle school student, this wrapping is not only green-friendly but a time-saver. Colorful bags with drawstrings in a plethora of colors and sizes insure that you’ll never need to use tape or scissors.

Fish Lips
Fish Lips Paper Designs has hip, recycled giftwrap creations made with soy-based ink. We especially like the fun “Chilly Dogs” wrap.
